• Speaking of funds, debt and mezzanine vehicles have continued to raise more and more capital in recent years, which, to an extent, ensures GPs that the debt needed to complete deals is out there. Take a look at our breakdown here. PitchBook Platform users can access all of the data here.
• Many of the world's largest PE firms are located on the U.S. East Coast, but we recently put the spotlight on investors out west (who just happen to be on pace for a decade record in completed deals).
